I'm having Charlie re-tune my ECU with a new tune and I am wondering if I would ask him to change my TC setting while he's at it.

So for those who can adjust their TC setting, what's the best setting for the track?

Most of the time this is true. But with an open diff and 225rwhp on a tight turn, the inside wheel just spins and spins.

The normal TC does a decent job at making the car go forward instead of just spinning helplessly. Maybe one of the available TC setting does a great job, that's what I want to know.

My 2-Eleven seems to work well with the traction control at the one o'clock position. I don't know if that helps....matter a fact it probably does not help at all.:(

I have experiemented a bit...

I have played with the traction control on my Exige S 240 a bit, both for autocross and on the track. Note also that I have a limited slipn differential (LSD).

I find it generally unobtrusive, not like some other cars. You can still notice it if you are paying close attention. I find it unnecessary while autocrossing and the LSD seems to have the desired effect on sharp corner exit. (It has the undesirable increased understeer on corner entry.)

For autocrossing, I have it set at 8% and find I rarely get into it. When I do, I do not get a sense I lost any time. Its effect is smooth and I do not feel I am pressing the throttle for more speed like I might with the NSX or M3.

On the track, I set it depending on the traction available. In the morning, cold tires, damp track, I will set it at 5-6%. Later in the day, with my confidence up and hot tires, it goes back to 9%.

Yep, I am worried enough about hitting something that I remain cautious. I do not turn it off unless I want to play....
